Boy, 14, is fighting for his life after 'crashing electric scooter into a bus stop'

London police say a teenager is in critical condition after a separate e-scooter accident.

While the police statement didn't identify Hartridge due to the family's wishes, Britain's The Guardian newspaper later identified the victim as the YouTube star.

YouTube Creators tweeted, "We're deeply saddened to learn about the tragic loss of a truly talented British creator, Emily Hartridge".

"Emily was involved in an accident yesterday and passed away". Celebrities including Davina McCall joined her family in paying tribute.

Best known for her weekly "10 Reasons Why..." videos, Hartridge covered a range of topics from sex, relationships and life, to prove that "everything in the world could be explained with 10 reasons", her YouTube channel states.

She had also talked of her hopes of having children one day, saying she had frozen her eggs in case she became infertile.

The TV presenter's death was confirmed in a post to her Instagram on Sunday, praising her as a "very special person".

The social media giant still has a lot of hurdles to get over before Libra is a reality and readily available to Facebook users. He said the reason he does not like them is because they are very volatile and can decrease in value very quickly.

"This is a terrible thing to have to say over Instagram but we know many of you were expecting to see Emily today and this is the only way to contact you all at once", the post stated.

It's illegal in the U.K.to ride motorized scooters on roads or sidewalks, but the law is widely flouted.

'I did think to myself, "This is actually not that safe"'.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: 'Police were called to Monks Orchard Road, Beckenham, at 11:42hrs on Saturday, 13 July to reports that a teenage boy had crashed an electric scooter.

The news was made public on her official Instagram page on Saturday with an open letter to her fans and followers.

'Officers attended along with the London Ambulance Service and London's Air Ambulance.

E-scooters can only now be used on private land. He was taken by Air Ambulance to hospital where he remains in a critical condition. Enquiries into the circumstances continue'.
